Preferred by die sinkers, jewelers, and instrument makers because of the unique shapes. Die Sinker Rifflers are slender with narrow ends to maximize detail work. The middle section is safe (uncut) and each shape offers its own distinct advantage.

RIFFLER - from the German word reifeln, meaning to channel, chaufer, flute or groove. Originally used and hand forged by die sinkers, mold & die makers, silversmiths, and other skilled craftsmen in shapes and cross-sections appropriate to their work. The teeth are cut on small areas that can be shaped into everything from trowels to button hooks. The long middle section serves as a handle.
